Our beautiful, newly decorated beach house is exactly what you have been looking for! Located in THE perfect location on Gulf Blvd. in Redington Beach where you can watch the sunrise or sunset over beautiful Redington Beach OR pristine Boca Ciega Bay from our “Crow’s Nest” balcony every day of the year! Redington Beach is arguably one of the most sun-drenched beaches in America! That's because this amazing part of Florida sees sunlight 361 days out of the year. Put on your swimsuit and flipflops, walk out the front door and cross the street onto the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. You will literally be from door to beach in just a few short minutes with beach access being a few houses to the north or south on Gulf Blvd. (The photo of our house from the beach will give you a feel for how close we are to the beach. Unfortunately a new home has since been built on the formerly empty lot. Nevertheless we still have a great view of the beach and, of course our proximity to the beach hasn't changed).

Our “Key West” style beach house sleeps up to 12 people VERY COMFORTABLY! The Second Level (Main Level) of the home has new beach wood floors and has recently been painted. New furniture and beach themed home décor throughout the home will engulf your senses throughout your beach vacation stay. Our Main floor has a fully stocked, modern kitchen with all the utensils, pots, pans and appliances any cook could ask for! The great room and dining area provide ample space for large gatherings of friends and family. A rock fireplace, 48” 1080P flat screen TV with 200w sound bar provides access to DirecTV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other popular streaming services. Even the kids can play on the X Box Gaming System complete with 11 games and dual controls.

Follow the hallway to Bedroom #1, furnished with 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4). The ELEVATOR that provides comfortable access to both floors opens into this bedroom.

Continue down the main hallway to the fully tiled “Grand Bathroom” with 2 sinks, jetted tub, separate shower. Bedroom #2, with brand new carpet contains a new queen bed and 24” 1080P flat screen TV, also with satellite and streaming video access. Across the hallway is the master bedroom. With access to the grand bathroom the master bedroom is the perfect place to retreat and rest after an amazing day at the beach. Lay back and relax to your 32” 1080P flat screen TV. Watch what you want! After all, you have satellite and streaming TV access to thousands of viewing choices! Every room in the house includes Bluetooth portable stereo units so you can listen to your downloaded music with crisp clear sound at any level.

Two roll away twin beds add extra sleeping space for larger groups. The Main level will sleep up to 8 people.

The first floor unit is all tile and has been freshly painted and decorated. With a mini kitchen, complete with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, appliance, cooking and eating utensils.

The elevator opens to a comfortably sized sitting room (elevator is currently out of operation). The Main Family Room is furnished with a large, brand new sectional couch and two 'X Twin' futons. This area is perfect for smaller gatherings. When it is time to go to bed, the gathering area comfortably sleeps 4 people. The family room is also furnished with a 40” 1080P flat screen TV with satellite and streaming access.

Directly off the Family room is a bedroom furnished with 4 twin beds (one is a pull out trundle twin). Two of the beds can be pushed together to make a cozy, comfortable queen bed. A bathroom with a shower finish off the 1st level living area. Of course all the rooms include top line Bluetooth sound systems and are decorated in cheerful beach décor!

The first floor level comfortably sleeps 8 people. Combining both levels a large family or group of 14 people can comfortably rest for the night.

Beach parking won’t be a problem here! No more costly parking fees while spending time at the beach! With a 2.5 car garage and a half circle driveway, 3-4 cars can park! By the way, the garage includes a full washer and dryer and it is stocked with all the gear you could possibly need for your Florida beach vacation! Beach toys, fishing gear, picnic coolers, beach blankets, umbrellas, beach chairs and more! 11 bicycles and 2 child scooters will make your local commute or touring an absolute pleasure! Winn Dixie Market and CVS pharmacy are only 2 blocks down the street, not to mention 'The Surf Shop', located about a block from the house and 'John's Pass', a favorite destination of locals and visitors which is less than two miles down Gulf Blvd. John's pass is home to 'Buba Gumps', 'Hooters', local pizzerias, beach bars, deep sea fishing tours, a marina and lots of shopping. 'John's Pass' is a 'must see' on your list of places to visit. If mini golf is your pleasure, you can walk one block south and enjoy yourself! We have you covered for your daily walk/bike to the beach. With luxurious, over sized beach towels provided for each guest, 6 beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas, a rolling/backpack cooler, 4 mini coolers, loads of children’s beach toys and 7 body boards, your family has everything necessary for hours of fun and relaxation at our pristine beach! And… after a sandy day at the beach, shower off with our back yard shower!

A six burner BBQ grill and patio fire pit does the trick for restful nights in the back yard. The back porch is made up of beautiful shale and is surrounded by dozens of palm trees and fauna, natural to the Florida Gulf Coast. Want to check out the beach and the sunrise or sunset? You can do so from the oversized deck that can be accessed from either of 2 French Doors that open off the Main Level Great Room. Walk up another level to our “Crows Nest Deck”. Now you are above it all! To the east, your view is that of the Intracoastal Waterway known as Boca Ciega Bay. To the west is an unimpeded view of the crashing waves against the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico! Patio furniture on every deck and in the backyard finish off the accouterments that ensure your total comfort throughout your vacation stay.

Even though you have all you need for an amazing vacation and never need to leave the house, you are located in THE premiere location on Florida's Gulf Coast! The 'Suncoast Beach Trolley' and the 'Pinnelas Suncoast Transit Authority' buses pass the house every 15-30 minutes 365 days a year! The stop is located directly at the base of our driveway!

About Craig Gibson

My wife (Karen) and I love our beach vacations! We absolutely love the Gulf. For years we have traveled with our large family (8 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 lovely daughters in law) to various beaches for our family vacations. We absolutely love renting beach homes, particularly because nothing matches the feeling of hanging out in beach towns and communities. Last year, after returning from one of our annual Caribbean Cruises we drove down the Florida Gulf Coast looking for houses. We found this perfect home in Redington Beach and have furnished it, painted it, decorated it and prepared it so we could have a slice of the beach life we have always longed for. We currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah and we visit Florida whenever we can. We are happy to share this great home on the beach with you!

It remains our sincere goal to provide our guests with a great vacation experience. We know how long and hard people save for their precious vacations and we truly want you to have a happy, positive memory of your stay. We will not promote or represent anything in our home that is not real and genuine. The complete satisfaction of our guests remains our priority and we will do everything within our power to provide you with one of your happiest, relaxing beach vacations ever.

Craig Gibson purchased this house in 2014

Why Craig Gibson chose Redington Beach

If you are an experienced beach vacationer like we are, you know how much it can cost to spend a night.. or a week... or more, in a beach house. Some of the homes in our neighborhood rent for $800 - $1,500/night! Not to mention the beach hotels along the coast between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach. These hotels rates range from $200-$500/night! Our particular beach house is located on Gulf Blvd. Same Blvd. as any other beach house in the region. The difference between our beach rental and the other beach rentals is that we live across the street from the beach. Even though our property is not on the beach itself, it still has all the views, all the feel, all the convenience and only steps away from the beach. The difference is that you, your friends and your family can stay an entire week in our beach house for just about what it would cost you to stay 1 or 2 nights with our neighbors across the street. We have an amazing location at an absolute fraction of the cost!! Why wouldn't we buy this property? Besides, with our 'Key West' architecture, we absolutely fell in love with this house the minute we drove past it last summer for the first time.

What makes this house unique

You are staying in a Beach House at a mere fraction of the cost of many other houses in the area. Not only do we have a great location with amazing beach and water views, this home has every amenity anybody vacationing at the beach could ever want. 10 bicycles, HD TV's in every room, patio furnishings, a brand new quartz glass patio heater, a 6 burner BBQ, shower in the yard, beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach coolers.... We even have a washer and dryer for you! This is such a great place to stay. You won't be sorry for choosing to spend your vacation in this awesome beach home!!!

Fun at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 just returned from a wonderful stay here at Redington Beach.

We arrived to find the house comfortably cool and very clean. The layout worked well for us with the convenience of 2 living areas. Beds were comfortable, plentiful towels and linens. Kitchen was well-stocked with cookware, plenty of cleaning supplies. The decor was beachy and charming. The location was perfect with quick access to a beautiful, uncrowded beach-everyone went to the beach morning and night! We sat on the porches and in the back yard enjoying just being together. It was great to have the bikes at our disposal and we used them multiple times, as well as all the beach gear. Thanks to the owners and property managers, the entire reservation, check-in and check out process was smooth and effortless. My family made great memories here that we will cherish for years to come!

Fun family time!!!

  • 4 of 5

We really had a great time at your beach house!! It made it so our whole family could be together! The lower level might work nicer with a queen or king size bed given the fact that there’s two sets of bunk beds upstairs. The cleaning list and expectations seems quite excessive given the cleaning fee is $275. The beach was amazing and the location was nice. The access to the garage and bikes, pool toys and kiddie pool out back was perfect! When the lower level bedroom AC went out we were very impressed with the prompt service job from Tony!! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Allyson We are always happy when our guests enjoy their time at our home. We also take great pride in the fact that we listen quite intently to suggestions from past guests that will make the home even more enjoyable. We are, in fact going to take action on your recommendation that we place a queen bed in the downstairs bedroom given we have the two bunk beds upstairs. We will be at the house in med July. At that time, we will make that switch by adding another queen downstairs. Thanks for staying with us! Please visit again! Craig and Karen

Perfect family beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is located right across from a beautiful beach. The Redington Beach sand is as nice as anywhere in the world. The home owners are friendly and wonderful people always looking to make sure that we enjoy our stay. In fact, we just booked another reservation next year.

The home has 2 spacious floors and great viewing deck elevated above the house. The home also contains many amenities for your enjoyment Eg bikes, beach items, etc.

Definitely a place a stay if you want to visit the beach.
